WWE Superstar Adam Rose was recently suspended for 60 days due to a wellness policy violation. After WWE announced his suspension, Rose issued a statement clarifying that he had been suspended for taking a medication which had been prescribed to him by a doctor. Apparently Rose was suspended for taking Aderall and according to him WWE knew about his prescription for over a year.

Adam Rose has remained adamant that he did nothing wrong and followed proper protocol. He even went as far as to post a note from his doctor on Twitter saying that he has recently undergone thorough testing, and he legitimately needs to take the Aderall to treat his ADHD. Rose posted the following on Twitter:


To Whom It May Concern,

I am writing this letter on behalf of Adam Rose (Ray Leppan – D.O.B. 7/20/79), whom i have treated since 4/20/15. He has chronic signs and symptoms of ADHD, determined through a very thorough psychiatric exam on 4/30/15. He takes Aderall XR, which is an FDA-approved treatment for ADHD, and we have followed all standard of care protocols during his treatment, which has gone very well. He takes his medication as prescribed, and he is compliant with my treatment recommendations.
